A sketch of the racing driver both loved and hated by NASCAR fans
Jeff Gordon took NASCAR by storm; his early success, good looks, and apparent disregard of the domination of existing driving stars, such as the famed "Intimidator," was an immediate polarizing force for fans. He was either loved or hated by fans of the racing seriesâ€â€Âthere were no bystanders in the stands. This profile on the famous young driver details how he came to establish his presence in the sport, prove his merit as a talented driver, and how he dealt with the passionate disagreement about him among NASCAR fans.

Revered by NASCAR fans as one of the all-time greatest drivers of the premier stock car series, this profile on the late Dale Earnhardt shares more about his career than how many times he made it to the winner’s circle. Interesting insights into the history of the talented driver include his near-split with Richard Childress Racing just before the introduction of his iconic racecar, the race he called his “breakthrough†victory, and the full story of the only race against his father Ralphâ€â€Âand how a fellow competitor was not pleased with either of them after the last lap.
